  • DENVER, CO - FEBRUARY 27: Jason Collins #98 of the Brooklyn Nets dribbles the ball up the court as Anthony Randolph #15 of the Denver Nuggets defends during the fourth quarter at Pepsi Center on February 27, 2014 in Denver, Colorado. Collins is the first openly gay athlete to play in one of the four major sports in the United States. Collins will wear #98 in honor of Matthew Shepard who was killed as part of a hate crime in 1998 near Laramie, Wyoming. Shepard's parents are expected to be in the crowd tonight.
